Wirelessly posted (8320 Titanium)

I wonder if the sleeper magnet in the bb is turning off your screen...does anything happen to your bb when you put it on the laptop??? Does it go to sleep or lock or anything???

The magnet is in the case. The magnetic SWITCH, which triggers in holster mode, is in the BlackBerry.

I believe your issue is that you have a laptop that does not have a physical latch to close the lid and instead has a magnet. When you place your device on the laptop, the magnet for the speaker in the phone is mating up with the magnet in the laptop, and the laptop thinks it has been closed. The solution is to not do this anymore.

Correct me if im wrong, but I think the OP is saying that the screen on his laptop is shutting off, not the screen on his phone.

You are correct. Please read my post again. It explains why his laptop screen would shut off.

I've had this happen ONCE. And I have never been able to reproduce it. I just figured the speaker magnet in my berry interacted with the magnetic sensor in my laptop that turns the screen off when the lid is closed.
